The mighty Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Enclave Wave pre-order arrives!

Modiphius has announced the arrival of a major new force in the Wasteland as the mighty Enclave pre-order rumbles into view!

Shipping in November, this release heralds a potent new force for your Fallout: Wasteland Warfare tabletop encounters with the Enclave: Core BoxHigh CommandHellfire SetFrank Horrigan and the Enclave Wave Card Expansion Pack making their debut. There’s also a special Enclave bundle which features the promo exclusive figure of Lorenzo Cabot!

As a special bonus, Modiphius is also releasing the pre-orders for the Denizens of the Wasteland Card Expansion Pack and the Wave 1 Fundamentals Card Deck. Now, on with the details.

Enclave: Core Box

The Enclave are the last vestiges of the pre-war system of government in the United States of America. Formed as part of the continuity of government system, the Enclave was formed of high-ranking government officials as well as wealthy industrialists and leading scientific minds. They were to be protected and sheltered from the great war by bunkers and isolated locations, thus preserving the top echelons of the country to rebuild. 

The officers are flanked by heavily armed and power armored soldiers who have trained from a young age to wear their rigs. and the most potent members of an assault team are the Tesla Troopers. These electrically-charged fiends blast, zap, burn and liquify any opponents with high-powered energy weapons, carving a path into any foe they come across. 

Enclave: Core Box

Enclave: High Command

The Enclave is a highly militarised society, and its upper echelons are made up of the elite that the faction can provide. Their officers wield the authority of the Enclave in the wasteland and the various outposts it controls, ruling with an iron fist and stamping the Enclave’s values onto the landscape. 

They are often accompanied by the scientists that the faction is so well know for. Advanced weaponry and armor technology requires testing and attuning, and Enclave scientists go about their task with single minded determination and drive. No one has advanced the Enclave more than Colonel Augustus Autumn. He was the power behind the computerised-throne of John Henry Eden, and took point on the Enclave’s efforts to secure and control Project Purity in the Capital Wasteland.

Enclave: Hellfire Set

Of all the power armor variants that the Enclave deploy, the Hellfire armor causes the most fear among wastelanders. The armor is rightly named as its wearers go to battle equipped with flame-throwing weaponry designed to bring desolation and ruin to all. Specially designed to be resistant to the heat of flame weapons, the Hellfire armor allows maximum flexibility and resilience while incorporating advanced respiration masks to keep oxygen flowing in burning environments. 

Enclave: Hellfire Set

Frank Horrigan

Frank Horrigan it the ultimate foot soldier for the Enclave–though ‘walking tank’ might be a better description. Starting as an unstable soldier deployed in the ruins of California, he quickly became known as a brutal instrument of murderous efficiency. While on a mission to the Mariposa Military Base he was exposed to FEV, beginning his mutation. He was experimented on still further by Enclave scientists to exacerbate his aggression, size, and strength, to the point where he could decapitate a deathclaw with one blow and put his first through the combat-armored chest of a Brotherhood of Steel knight.

Mondo Games announces Disney Shadowed Kingdom

Disney Shadowed Kingdom

Mondo Games has officially announced Disney Shadowed Kingdom, an easy-to-learn 2-Player co-operative card game designed by Imp House Games. Available now at MondoShop.com and select Target stores, the game will also see a North American retail release this October.

At a $20 cost, Disney Shadowed Kingdom contains everything needed for play in both basic and advanced difficulty modes, and is adorned by breathtaking illustrations from artist Marcel Mercado. The narrative at the center of the game was developed with expansion in mind; future releases in development feature innovative mechanics and play modes designed to further the story arcs and abilities of the Heroes introduced in this game.

In Disney Shadowed Kingdom, players take on the role of brave explorers, navigating mysterious streets and alleyways in search for lost remnants of Magic needed to return the castle and surrounding areas to their former glory. The catch: Shadow is everywhere, preventing players from hearing and seeing one another. They must therefore utilize memory and deduction to communicate without speaking or signaling.

The goal of the game is two-fold: Discover Magic and Dispel Shadow from the Kingdom. Turns center around playing cards into a face-down grid in one of two directions, either forward, forcing your partner to discover cards pushed out of the grid toward them, or sideways, dispelling cards from the edge of the Kingdom entirely. Only by discovering enough Magic to save the Kingdom can you win the game, however, uncovering too much Shadow will lead to failure. Silently keeping track of which cards have been played and their current locations within the hidden grid is crucial for success.To keep things interesting, each location encountered while searching for Magic triggers in-game effects like randomizing the grid, peeking at cards, or discarding your hand. Fortunately, each player is able to enlist the help of their favorite Disney Hero (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, or Pete) to activate special powers to aid in their quest.
